Ok, I have finally got enough stuff together to start a thread of my own.
I came to this forum with the intention of creating a boba fett suit, but since being here I have seen how awesome the custom mandos look and thought it would be a great exercise in weathering / damage techniques for when I finally start the boba.
So, Intro over here is my idea for the custom mando.
I wanted to create a sniper type armor (any excuse to build a MASSIVE gun ) I like to think this is a more specialist skill than general infantry, more suited to a mando. This got me thinking what sort of gadgets the suit would include. I want to create a RF on steroids as well as a ridiculous sniper rifle, I'm also looking to have some sort of sophisticated tracking/ mapping computer of one of the gauntlets and have already started working on the close range weapon (possibly flame thrower) for the other gaunt. Another feature I will be focusing on is the cape, I want it to be full length and possibly include a hood to help hide my deadly assassin.
So far I have the chest armor and one gauntlet made.
Let me know what you think, and ANY suggestions would be great.
